(This one hurts. It’s hard, because I am a HUGE Michael Moore fan. But I have much reason to hope here.)
Here’s a post by Michael Moore, and it raises , once again, a deep concern I have
I have to say, something here disturbs and dissapoints me deeply, as much as I agree with the entirety of the rest of it. #5 talks about Exxon CEO Tillerson “making a lucrative deal with Russia” (which is certainly undeniably bad), but mentions NOTHING about the impact such a thing would have upon the Climate. Again, the Progressive concerns don’t see the need to MENTION the Climate. See why I get concerned about this? It seems to be an indicator to me that we are facing the same kind of problems that outright denial pose for our acting on Climate. Distraction. EVEN WHEN, with issues like Tillerson, the Climate Crisis issues are written ALL OVER IT. Shaking my head.
I don’t get it. Michael Moore cares about the ecological crisis. I just wish he would talk about it a little more, as if it were a REALLY URGENT thing. When talking about Exxon and money, our earth’s ecosystem is always a concern. Unfortunately, companies like Exxon work to try to keep it from being so. Micheal is such an important and strong voice. I hope he will experience something which brings our Eco-crisis home just a little more, so that he can apply his incredible story telling skills and passion to this issue!
(I posted the following back in November on a Facebook post:
Michael Moore, when are you going to do a movie on our ecological crisis? We need talent and wit and insight such as yours to help focus us on that. You are one of our generation’s great story tellers and BS detectors! The Climate movement needs you, even in the midst of this Trump debacle. Indeed, it represents THE single biggest danger Trump poses to humanity and the planet’s systems of sustaining life as we know it.
